Abstract:
A simplification and standardisation of the existing methods to produce aflatoxin B-1 (AFB(1)) on rice medium is described. As per conventional method, rice were first soaked in 1 ml water/2 g of rice for 2 hr, autoclaved, and then inoculated with Aspergillus flavus. During different stages of incubation, water was added according to different regimens. It was concluded that 1 ml water/100 g of rice at 24 to 36 hr of incubation is the maximum amount of water that could be added for optimal AFB(1) production.
